The work of producing this book has been
hindered by many obstacles, the limited time
being the greatest. The biography section fol-
lowing represents many hours of work, particular
attention being given to the elimination of
remarks which might hurt a sensitive nature.
No attempt has been made to reduce the
individual thesies to a set style, but after read-
ing them you will be convinced that measures
have been taken to prevent undue criticism or
A flattering write-up often suggests sarcasm,
while one revealing petty shortcoming, and
satirizing a man's mistakes is a positive indica-
tion that he is well liked by his classmates.
The publication of this book was made
possible by the advertisers and contributors, so
devote as much time to the reading of the last
few pages as you do the first. Patronize them
when you have the chance.
Textile education in the United States dates back
comparatively few years, but in this short time the
worth of the instruction given by these schools has
been shown. It was at first thought that this field
could not be entered through the doors of any educa-
tional institution, but that one had to approach by
means of the mill only. Today this has been changed
through the establishment of textile schools which
offer an intensive training in the manufacturing,
dyeing and finishing of textile fabrics.
Many people have the impression that only theory
is taught at a textile school but the time in school is
equally divided between the classroom and the
machine room. The students run all the machines,
pull them down and assemble them again, and make
all the settings. In the dyeing department the students
dye, finish and mercerize the cloth in their own dye
house with standard equipment.
By combining theory and practical work the
student receives a training that should make him
competent enough to enter any field of the textile
industry. He should however, at the start not ex-
pect high positions but be contented with an oppor-
tunity to advance on his merits.

Here is the "Big Chief" himself, with all the grace and poise
of a stern editor. And just think, he comes from Taunton; but
remember, good things come from small places. Wherever there
are activities, you'll always find "Linny." He never misses a
ball game — Who threw that? Wherever you see k 'L,inny," you'll
always see his shadow in the person of "Gibby." They stick
together like honey-suckle to a front porch.
He knows so much about carding, he thinks a second hand
in a card room is a dealer in antiques; but nevertheless, "Iyinny"

will never be far from you.

Where this gentleman comes from, nobody knows. Some say
that he comes from Borneo, others accuse him of being a resident
of Taunton. Nevertheless, he is a wild, wild man in school, and
with the ladies.
He is a most mysterious person, being conspicuous because of
the fact that he hibernates during the summer and winter months
under a dense growth of silky beard.
Much to Barney's distress, he possesses a remarkable ability
to accept "invitations" to partake of sumptuous repasts at the
Eagle or at Sokoll's.
Frank produces many thrills for the teachers. Among them
may be mentioned his reluctance to assume his usual sitting
position in the Card Room after his first few riding lessons.

in the Textile World; at least we have hopes.

Here we have him ! The successor to "Big Munn." Bob's
great hobby is wrestling; if you don't think so, then try to talk or
rather argue with him concerning the science of rolling and tumbling
on a mat.
Aside from wrestling, Bob enjoys greatly a hearty laugh.
Many a dull class-room has been brought up to the highest pitch
of merriment as a result of Bob infecting the rest of the " gang '
with his unrestrained mirth.
I" his three years at B. D. T. S., Bob has been a very good
student. His standing can be well judged from the fact that he
was the recipient of a scholarship during his last two years of
^tudy. It is very evident that he feels right at home in a card
working on such mysteries as differential and builder motions.

Will any of us forget ' ' Red's ' ' first appearance in the ' ' Chem ' '

we must admit that he can " step " when anyone gives him a poke.
His innocence was refreshing and his blank looks at some of the
worldly expressions were amusing.
At times he has been known as '"father" and he certainly
lived up to his name in the little affair with " Junior."
His outbursts were frequent and in the "lab," "cut it out
Flanagan," was a familiar saying. But as he says, "the innocent
shall suffer." His presence in the "Lab" when the water was
thrown out the window has never been satisfactorily explained but
we who know him best, would never connect him with anything of
the sort. His love for the "stirring rod" is remarkable.

The woman hater; he can't bear to look at them (from a

and when it comes to Chemistry, he knows his stuff. Ask where
Pitu is, and you will always be told that he's up in his room.
He certainly has stuck to his school work, (there's no getting
away from it ;) nevertheless he is a four letter man. He received
one in baseball and three from home. Pitu played ball both years
and also served as manager for the season of 1925. He certainly
did dig up a card full of games for this season. Everybody thought
sure Yale was on the list and it would have been too but for the
'fact that Yale wouldn't play Pitu's team.
We are certain that Pitu will be well versed in Chem. and
Lab. work when he graduates and predict that he will hold down
many a good position.

^tst0rg $i t\]t (Ela£0, 1925
Three years ago our class came into existence, brim full of
ideas to revolutionize the textile industry. Our alma mater
received the most spirited bunch of fellows that she had ever had.
Alas! we were soon brought down to earth; we began to realize
that everything was not peaches and cream. In less than a fort-
night each and everyone of us had voluntarily come to the conclu-
sion that we knew but one thing ; — that we knew nothing.
The first year was not as eventful as the next two, altho we
were enlightened upon many subjects. Barney found out what the
teacher meant by a monkey wrench. L,inny learned that " Saco
Pettee " was a machine builder, not a boxer. Gibbie was informed
that we had a mule in school, and being good hearted brought
some Shredded Wheat for it. To his surprise he found that the
mule thrived on cotton. Bob, being a natural born chemist, tried
to burn h 2 o with his bunsen burner.
Much to our regret, John Ktheridge, William Bradly, John
Wade and Foster Broadhurst left our class for other fields.
In the course of events during the second year, the dyeing
laboratory was the Mecca of the jokesters. One day Bob put a
woolen skein in an indigo bath and carefully mixed and stirred it.
The bath was slowly heated up to (and beyond) the necessary
temperature. When the dyer went to lift the skein from the bath,
an oath escaped from his lips. The skein had disappeared.
Moral : Watch your temperature.
Barney inaugurated the spirit of haste and actually did two
experiments while the rest of the class were reading the first.
Barney Oldfield was the fastest man in Auto racing and Barney
Golding held the speed honors in chem. lab. The faculty con-
sidered cutting the corners off the sinks because Barney lost time
In getting around them. Sherman was going along like a whirl-
wind until he got 75 in designing, It broke his heart, because
Barney was after him like a tin can tied to a dog's tail. Yes, the

step on his heels, that he can't see where he is going. He was
invited to a fraternity smoker and was about to decline the invita-
tion with the excuse that he didn't smoke. However, he went
and got a cigar. Someone heard that he gave it to his father.
During the third year there was a little contest to see who
could cut the most cards for his Jacquard pattern. "Campy"
won without much competition as he was quite used to cutting
cards. (Pass the pack to him and see. ) In the cotton stapling
class, Monroe asked if staple was a kind of wire. He was

"Cljmt" Class ^tstor^
In the fall of nineteen twenty-three nine modern Ponce de
Eeons in the guest of the fountain of knowledge entered the portals
of the Bradford Durfee Textile School, and under her guidance
have successfully arrived at their destination.
These ambitious youths made up the famous "chem" class
which will be graduated this year.
Fired to a white heat with high ideals its members came from
the four corners of New England and placed their names upon the
school register. In the laboratory they began the struggle for a
thorough knowledge of the principles of Chemistry and dyeing.
Once the bond of fellowship had been formed the class was
inseparable and proceeded to uphold its standards against all
onslaughts, attaining a reputation immediately which stood out
(like "Red's" hair) for the ensuing two years.
What the entire class knew about chemistry at that early date
wouldn't cover a flea's handkerchief. What each member now
knows would fill many a volume, thanks to the diligent work of
his highness, "The Stirring Rod."
To relate all the events which took place during the two years
at Textile would be an impossibility but no history would be
complete without mentioning the following incidents :
"Arsenic's" request as to who Ethyl Alcohol was and if he
could make a date with her.
"Andy's" desire to wield the hammer that would "crack"
the oil in gas making.
"Pitu's" impression that he had joined the army when told
to "fire" the "bomb" in the caliometer,
Much to the sorrow of his classmates a very popular member
of the class, David "Shorty" Palmer, having obtained a position
during the latter part of the second year, severed connections with
the school. Although small in stature he has mastered many diffi-
cult "propositions" notably. "Arsenic Bill Cromie."
Another unforgetable incident occurred, when "Jake" threw
a beaker of water at "Arsenic" and the latter returned the compli-
ments but his beaker didn't contain Water !
"Pitu's" very "special" mixture of Beechnut chewing
tobacco and rubber will have a lasting impression with some
members of the class.
Joy must give way to sadness as we leave those friends and
classmates who have endeared themselves to us at good old Durfee
Textile but let us hope for success to the chemists of 1925 and we
trust that we shall soon meet again.

The Student Body elected to the Advisory Board a group
of conscientious men, capable of passing judgment on matters of
athletics and entertainment.
Meetings were held every other week throughout the school
year at which they sanctioned the purchase of uniforms and
supplies, discussed the schedules, and arranged the finances of
the basketball and baseball teams.
Under the auspices of the Athletic Association two socials
were held. Both proved to be financially successful and added
much to the entertainment of the students and their friends.
The banner was purchased for the benefit of the school and
it now adorns the front wall of the Assembly Hall.
The Advisory Board has closed the most successful year,
attaining a standard for future Boards to strive for. Its accom-
plishments will stand as a monument to the inexhaustible
interest of the members.

Coach — James Worton
The baseball team, with Mr. Worton as coach, held its first
practise at North Park with about thirty-five candidates on deck.
Although they had neither bat nor ball in their hands for
over a year their appearance was very promising.
There is plenty of material for the coach to pick from and
the competition will be very keen. The weakest spots in the
team will be fought for by new men who show great promise.
Andrew and Magnino are in line for catching position. Hoar,
Dean, Marston and Keresey are expected to twirl the pellet
through the season. Posnak will take care of short and
Masterson will most likely cover the keystone sack. The other
positions are undecided, the most likely candidates being
Keresey, McCanu, Griffin, Gracia and Connors.
With such a wealth of valuable material, Textile is sure to
stage a come-back and get sweet revenge for some of the defeats
handed out to them last year.
The schedule arranged b}' Manager Keresey is as follows :

Walter Marston, Assistant Manager
James Worton, Coach
Coach Worton issued the call for candidates on October 28th.
The veterans who turned out were Cromie, Beans, McArdle and
two subs of '24, Crowley and Keresey. MacBeath, Bannister,
McCann, Magnino, Lahan, Connors, Harrington, Marston,
Lynch, and Kelly were the new men.
The team was handicapped by a series of unusual accidents
at the start of the season. After some of the difficulties were
overcome, Coach Worton succeeded in obtaining one of the best
teams that ever represented B. D. T. S.
The season started off with a bang by defeating the Bristol
Aggies. Our next opponent was Rogers High, New England
champions of '24. Th : s contest ended in defeat. An oppor-
tunity to play this tean a return game on our own floor never
materialized. In our first home game we took the fast Delphi
five into camp, although, they later avenged this defeat. The
next game was played during the Christinas vacation when some
of the players were at home, consequently the game was lost.
Our next two games. Brown Freshmen and dishing Academy
were defeats for us by very narrow margins. This proved the
turning point of the team's fortunes ; West Warwick was de-
feated and then in the most important game of the year we
avenged the defeat in New Bedford overcoming our greatest
rival, New Bedford Textile. In the three following contests we
returned the victors over St. George's, Providence Night College
and General Electric.
The school spirit which had been very good, was now at
it's height for the Lowell game. A bus was chartered by the
students to accompany the team to Lowell. In one of the best
exhibitions of basketball ever given in that city, our boys were
defeated by two points. ik A defeat, but an honor lo do so well."
By this time the fighting instinct of the graduates of
B. D. T. S. was astir and as a result the Alumni challenged us.
To prove the team of '25 was the best ever produced at " Tex,'
we accepted and came out far ahead. This ended the season
for Textile. Captain Cromie and McArdle played their last
game as they graduate in May.
The men to whom letters were awarded are : Captain
Cromie, Bannister, MacBeath, McCann, Bevans, Magnino,
Much credit is due Coach Worton for his untiring efforts
and fine coaching.

The B. D. T. S. A. A. is open for membership
to anyone who has completed a regular or special
course at the school. Each and every man who has
attended our school is urged to become a member
and help us in building a powerful and active asso-
After graduation if a student has no point of con-
tact with his classmates he drifts apart from them.
He loses many of the social and business contacts that
are obtained from meeting his fellow graduates. He
loses the good comradeship that has been enjoyed
while in school and loses all interest in the school
The Alumni Association was formed to keep the
graduates of the school in touch with their fellows
and with the school.
The Annual Banquet and Reunion offers an op-
poitunity to renew our acquaintances and friendships
of school days and when possible lend a helping hand
to one another.
The very purpose of this organization will be
defeated if all the graduates do not join our or-
Therefore, let me again urge you to enroll at
once in our association and attend regularly our

Phi Psi is a national fraternity with six active and eight
alumni chapters and is the largest textile fraternity in the world.
It was founded in Philadelphia, Penn., on March 18, 1903, with
five members. At the present time the membership of Phi Psi
Fraternity is over a thousand. Delta Chapter was organized at
the Bradford Durfee Textile School, Fall River, Mass., in 1909.
At the start of the school year Delta Chapter held its annual
smoker with the freshman at the school as guests, giving the
new men an opportunity to become acquainted with the upper
classmen. During the year three socials were run with much
success, especially the Hallowe'en Party in the New Boston-
Road Club House. Many alumni, with their wives and sweet-
hearts joined the boys in having a good time.
More power to the Alumni.

K-A Electrical Warp Stop for Looms
The Warp Stop with a twenty year record of highest
efficiency and accellerated growth.
The K-A Electrical Warp Stop is a superior "motion"
because it is electrical.
It does not depend upon continuously agitated mech-
anism in functioning.
It acts with unequal promptness when a drop wire
falls — and only then.
It reduces the amount of fixing.
It increases production by minimizing loom stoppage
due to "warp stop" repair and adjustment.
It is the most readily adaptable to varying conditions.
That is why we are increasing our facilities.
That is why every mill man should learn facts concern-
ing our K-A Electrical.

Since the inception of this concern, in 1831, nearly one
hundred years ago, the shop, as it is known to those who are in
any way connected with it, and the management have been as one.
Since the day the first Whitin picker was built there has
been a sense of loyalty between employer and employee, the one
to the other, which has been and is reflected in the quality and
workmanship of all that has been produced by this plant.
Today, on the basis of the severe modern competition, these
two attributes stand all in good stead.
Due to being a self-contained unit under one roof more care-
ful supervision over design and more uniformity and consistency
in manufacture is had than is possible in a plant of several
separate units. And for the same reason, by the co-ope/ation
engendered thereby, the words " WHITIN" and "QUALITY"
Visitors are cordially invited at all times.
